SONGKRAN SOI 8 PATTAYA: FUN or MADNESS. สงกรานต์ พัทยา Siam on drums channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-j4mabK4Wfw (Wolfs of winter - Biffy Clyro (Drum cover by 9 year old) See now also part 2 in soi 7 songkran madness: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrjSX1GZzE0 A vlog through soi 8 with a waterproof camera. I got soaked in ice cold water. This is the part that doesn't make it fun anymore, in my opinion. Also the water buckets thrown in your face can be hurtfully. I lost a contact lens en got water in my ears for 1 day.

In April 2010 Soi 8 was jammed packed with song kran revellers, it's now empty. Further proof that Pattaya's dying a death. Which I find saddening 😔
I didn't went there on the high day 19 of April. But yes, soi Buakhao was very quiet in the evening and night. On the 19th it was also crazy busy during the day.

Hi there Steff,crazy time in Pattaya. I have never been there on song kran,and never will! On Samui it is only one or two days. In Japan this year,and to Pattaya for 5 days,may 10-15, before I go to Norway.
Maybe catch you in may then. cheers !

My first Songkran was on Bangla Road, Patong in 2004 and I thought it was fun. The year after was OK, and then I avoided them as much as I could, even staying inside all day. The Thais never seem to get bored with it, but then they love their TV soap operas too. I'm glad I don't have to go through that again.
Hard to tell what is worse, Ice cold water or watching a Thai soap :)

Great vid Steff, having a good time? :-) Being soaked in cold water is a good refresher if you had a few too many drinks ha ha. Have a great time.
It is JIm, walking into a 7 is like walking into a deep freezer, All fans are turned off also in the bars. :)

It's too much,too long in Pattaya and certainly the ice water and all the drunk stupid people.
You don't need songkran in Pattaya to stumble over drunken idiots :)
Jim L (1 year ago)
Then be sober, and stay away from things you can't handle :-)

No sunshine either, but still always hot. 1 or 2 days is fine, but 7 is ridiculous. Everybody looks as though they are forcing themselves to enjoy it. Been there, done it, but its a Thai celebration, so good luck to them.

hahaha ice cold water thanks for your sacrifice Steff it makes a good video to watch not so much fun to shoot i am sure, i think 2 or 3 days not so bad but after that to much madness not so much fun lol, hope the rest of your time will be dryer enjoy the rest of your stay Cheers,
Well, if they would use normal water, not iced, and forbid the blue heavy water pipes, it would be a great water festival.

userwl2850 (1 year ago)
I've done 3 times now....... and never again. I got an eye infection and couldn't wait to get home. first time... First day is great but once done it gets too much. hard to bar fine a girl "I want play songkran" after 8pm everybody's drunk already and go home.
yeah, I'm glad it's over also now. Well, it's still going on outside, but i'm in my room now :)
nice badtub the cooler,,,,damn that kid play good drums...haha i guess you did see a nough water for a whole year now...very good vlog Steff 👍up.
yes, Paul. It is enough for me now. Can't get out of the hotel, or i'm wet. :)
Barry Smith UCBC (1 year ago)
Its madness mate, good fun though. I think I have done about 7 of them and in a way I miss them, on the other hand it can get too much at times.
It's just too much. In Pattaya anyway. Maybe I'm getting old. haha
